I have a special place for those early 69 Dark Stars . Very ethereal . I like all the the pre 75 ones , for al the usual reasons , love all the jams etc, but the more "psychedelic" sounding ones ( the "Live Dead" one fore sure ) are highly prized .
I loved it when they brought it back ( to some extent ) in 89, but I generally find it sort of lumpy, "earthbound" . Yes they could get WAY OUT with it , but "ethereal" sounding, not really . You still have it in 74, just look a Jerry playing it in the GD movie footage ; but after that it is cool they play it , but for me it always misses something .
